Welcome to Oak Class!
For the forthcoming half term, all of the children in Oak Class will be working with Mrs Hatch, Mrs Doherty and Mrs Jackson.
For the Year 6's, this year will be filled with preparation for the SATs next May. However, you should always remember the following message;
SATs don't measure sports, SATs don't measure art,
SATs don't measure music, or the kindness in your heart.
SATs don't see your beauty, SATs don't know your worth,
SATs don't see the reasons you were put upon this earth.
SATs don't see your magic, how you make others smile,
SATs don't time how quickly you can run a mile.
SATs don't hear your laughter, or see you've come this far,
SATs are just a tiny glimpse of who you really are.
So sitting at your table, with a pencil and your test,
Remember SATs aren't who you are, remember you're the best.
Class teacher: Mrs Hatch
LSAs: Mrs Doherty and Mrs Jackson
PE is usually on a Tuesday morning, but we may get chance to go outside for PE too, so leave your kit in school all week!
Reading Superstars are checked weekly by our LSAs - you must read 3 times to yourself in school, 3 times at home and 3 times to an adult at home to reach the superstar goal! There are prizes for children that reach this target every week in a half-term and also termly so get reading!
As our topic 'Eureka' is based upon modern and ancient Greece, we have chosen the book Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Written by Rick Riordan, this is the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. The book was adapted into a motion picture and a graphic novel in 2010.
This book tells of the main character, Percy Jackson, as he discovers a world much bigger than he has ever imagined but is immediately handed a quest to redeem himself from a crime he never committed.
